Mary J. Blige has filed paperwork for the divorce claiming ex, Kendu Issacs, spent a over 400k of the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s cash on an unnamed girlfriend. The rumor mill points to a possible young protege, Starshell, is the other woman in question and the reason for the divorce drama heating up.
Sources told Page Six that Isaacs cheated on Blige with Starshell, 28, an up-and-coming artist Blige signed to her Matriarch Entertainment record label.
“Everyone knew. Mary was the last to know, but it’s like, how do you not know?” a source told us.
Another source added, “It was more like one of those things where you end up believing what you want to believe. But Mary had her suspicions.” Blige, 46, often brought Starshell to red carpets, events and TV appearances to build the burgeoning artist’s profile.
